    Tynion took some curious paths but ultimately The Joker was a wild ride and a terrific showcase for Jim Gordon and inspired moments of lunacy for its title character. Read Full Review

    In the end, this was more an old-school detective thriller than anything, and it delivers a strong conclusion. Read Full Review

    The Joker finale achieves what it intends to do, setting up the characters for the next phase of their lives as well as putting a bow on the storyline that has been rolling for the past 15 issues. As for whether it does so successfully, it's a mixed bag with some highlights and a lot of exposition. Read Full Review

    The Joker #15 finally concludes the globetrotting game of cat and mouse between Jim Gordon and The Joker. The resolutions in the comic are quick & predictable as it wraps up as much as it can while leaving a few doors open for a few characters. Jim gets his conclusion, which may prove dissatisfying to some fans of the character, but it at least puts him in a better place than where he began when the series started. Read Full Review

    The artwork here remains beyond solid and while the series wasn't able to end as strongly as it began, it definitely is a worthwhile series when it comes to a number of Gotham residents. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 5, 2022

    While this series for the most was pretty cool I can't say that we really needed this tacked-on finale issue because it ultimately didn't do much but give us some bread crumbs that some writers might continue with down the line...... or they might not. Really though, with the main Joker story and the Punchline back up it felt like more of a book that was simply here to remind people about what's been going on instead of doing something new.     Read Full Review

    As a wrap up for this series, the issue has some highs and lows. What I liked most about it is the treatment of Jim Gordon. His character arc feels like it finally reaches its conclusion here as he has the final opportunity to choose not only what to do with Joker, but what to do after. The rest of the threads of the plot are tied up neatly, if a little quickly. I'm honestly not sure if I'll ever return to this series now that it's over, but it was certainly a roller coaster while it lasted. Read Full Review
